Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented 2 workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked.
Kimberly says, "In spite of great advances in tools and business processes, many product development teams continue to fail for entirely predictable and avoidable reasons! I'm thrilled to be invited to share my insights and experience with effective product development teams with the Global Product Management Community!"

This week we will be examining & discussing the events that led up to the Oso Landslide. This was a disaster that never had to happen but it did. Why? It was a culmination of greed, corruption & ineptitude that was responsible for the tragic loss of life that will forever be a part of our being in the Northwest. From a county exec & local senator who cared more about the builders & lining their pockets, to the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management employee who left as the director of FEMA region 10 because it was discovered that he had a diploma from a diploma mill after a series of embarrasing emails in connetion with "Brownie" from the Katrina post catastrophe about "who was gonna git the perdiest suits" to this same man writing out a statement that all was safe at Steelhead when it was clearly KNOWN it was not. So while these people set in motion the unfathomable loss of life suffered that day, they were having affairs out of state on the taxpayer dime, running their own businesses & bidding for govt contracts while they were supposed to be taking care of residents safety. Meanwhile the DNR was lining their pockets while the timber companies were clearcutting on unstable lands & obviously cutting far beyond what was agreed. It was one big horrifc culmination of failures all across the board that killed 44 people that day.

Join host Lori Hays for an exciting conversation with author Mark David Gerson for a conversation about his literary journey and his newest book: Birthing Your Book: Even If You Don't Know What It's About
"I like to joke that my Muse tricked me into writing and, in a sense, that's true. In public school and through most of university, I did everything I could to avoid writing. I opted instead for subjects like math; that way, I minimized the dangers of not only being wrong but of being judged harshly for having been wrong.
"But my Muse had other plans, as I write about in Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir. Starting in high school when I was pushed into doing the publicity for two musical theater productions, I was slowly, subtly and unconsciously transformed into the writer I never thought I wanted to be. Within a decade, I was freelancing full-time as a self-taught writer and editor.
"What I have discovered over the years is that The Call To Write is one I can't ignore, which is why I titled my second book The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. I can't not write any more than I can't not breathe.
"Today, when I'm not working on my own creative projects, I'm helping to guide others -- writers and non-writers alike -- on theirs. I do it with my books and recordings. I do it in my workshops, webinars and seminars. And I do it one-on-one as a creativity catalyst, a term I invented to take coaching and mentoring to dynamic, more empowered levels.

It's hard to believe but Wednesday is the LAST show of the year! And since we'll be taking a holiday break, what better time to put your goals in writing, or better yet, on the air than NOW!
Join us for another Community Show on DDP Radio this week as we get the conversation rolling with an important topic: What are your goals and how do you plan on making them a reality? Do you want to eat healthier, give up gluten, or eat only when you're hungry? Tell us! Or maybe you want to dust off the DVD's and start working out again...give us a shout! We'll discuss strategies for time management, how to handle setbacks, and the all-important element of accepting the fact that it's not a race and there is no finish line - fitness and good health are a journey which require continual maintenance. What, that's a bad thing? There are no magic bullets and DDP is the first to say so. The leader of our team is 58 years young, looks better than he did 30 years ago and it's all because of daily dedication to the workouts and clean eating.
